Chinese Consulate-General, Los Angeles
443 Shatto Pl, Los Angeles, California 90020
Please join Last Chance for Animals (LCA) and Citizen Lobbyists for H.Res. 30 in speaking out against China's brutal dog meat trade — including the gruesome Yulin Dog Meat Festival, which is scheduled to happen again on June 20, 2017!!!
China’s dog and cat meat trade is a horrific and unregulated commercial industry that brutally tortures animals for profit. An estimated 10 million dogs and 4 million cats are slaughtered in China each year for meat. The dogs and cats are tied up, trucked long distances in cramped wire cages stuffed with dozens of other animals, then beaten, burned or boiled alive.
The Yulin Dog Meat Festival, which occurs each year on the summer solstice, is a particularly heinous display of cruelty created by the dog meat trade to sell more meat.
Global outrage, along with education and the furthering of progressive ideals in China, has resulted in a decline in dog meat consumption. Far fewer dogs were killed in Yulin in 2016 than in years passed, and the butchers now keep their activities hidden instead of displaying dogs and cats in the streets.
But the violence is still far from over — and it must be stopped.
Join us at the Chinese Consulate in Los Angeles on Friday, May 19, 2017 from 11am to 1pm, as we speak out on behalf of the dogs and cats of China!

Each one shows a bit of a walk to the consulate. I doubt we will be permitted to park in the consulate parking lot as we are there to protest their government. I'm hoping for street parking to be available
